[Mono-dev] Default code page used by mcs

I committed a patch that added /codepage to our mcs command line that I
missed for a long time. Now we don't have to specify the encoding we use in
mcs as we pass it on the command line.

So mcs can be modifed to use Encoding.Default as the default code page. I
think this is what most developers need as they edit their files using the
system code page and this is the behaviour of csc.exe as well.
